recommendation of the joint chiefs of staff, the obama administration will announce formally tomorrow that the ban on women in combat is over. they had been making some progress in this direction, recently opening up the special operations aviation command to female pilots, and last year opening up about 14,000 positions in the military that had been previously off limits to women. but this announcement could open up 230,000 new jobs to women over the course of the next year. the various service branches will make their own plans for how to do it. if there are individual specific jobs that they still want exempt for women, that they want exempt from this new policy, the service chiefs can ask for that. but that will not be the expectation. the priority, of course, is still military readiness and combat effectiveness above all. but they are making this move, starting tomorrow, to make serving equally recognized, equally. to clear the way for women in combat. joining us now is one of the women whose legal case on this issue may have helped push the military to this decision. she is capt

inaugural the obama administration recognizes the economy is tough and there's an awful lot of challenges facing the nation. this is a much more business oriented getting the job done type of inaugural if he is tivity. >> you are pointing to the issue of money there. they cut back on expenses. >> last year they raised 53 million. they allowed corporate contributions and lifted a cap between 2009 to 50,000 now it is unlimited. there were 10 balls in 2009. they went to a number of them. this time they cut it down to just two. while the venues are bigger now it is 20,000 some strong. it is all part of trying to recognize the country has big challenges ahead. the work begins the day after tomorrow. >> carl cameron keeping an eye on it for us live. thank you very much karl. >> barbara walters is recovering from a bump on the head tonight. veteran news woman tripped and fell at the washington home of britain's ambassador to the u.s. during an inaugural party. the fall left her with a cut on her forehead. while she remained alert her friends thought it was a good idea to take her to the hospital
to the obama administration, that that camp is interested in a peace offering even if the economy is in free fall. it might be convinced that its own survival is intrinsically linked with a conflict with the united states. so even if he's reaching out and he has an intended message of one, it's unclear if that message is going to be received. in the middle east the idea of winning and losing is a little different. there's a much longer historical perspective. the muslim brotherhood, for example, doesn't see this election by morsi or other muslim brotherhood gains as a victory. it's a step on the road to establishing a world as it existed before the collapse of the caliphate, before the disaster, as it sees it, of all the world war i agreements. so it's about winning battles as opposed to winning a decisive war that's going to have a decisive peace. >> richard, you're optimistic this might get through? >> i think i am -- >> i mean steve. >> i think richard is absolutely right. we don't know ultimately how they'll respond, and there's an awful lot about khamenei we don't know, but i think the
immediately. the terror threat in north africa is a growing concern for the obama administration. one that is opening up an incredibly divisive debate about what the united states should do. pentagon correspondent chris lawrence is "outfront." hillary clinton says it's risky to ignore this rising threat. >> benghazi did not happen in a vacuum. instability in mali has created an expanding safe haven for terrorists. >> reporter: and the defense secretary sounds like a man ready to go on offense. >> we've got to go after al qaeda, wherever the hell they're at. and yes, in mali if necessary. >> reporter: but the white house is not embracing the same tough talk. >> we are working with france and support their effort in mali, and believe that the goal of preventing terrorists' safe haven is an important one. >> reporter: in public, the administration swings from forceful to tentative. a senior u.s. official said the defense secretary's tough talk is classic panetta. "he's letting the french know we've got their back in the offensive against al qaeda." u.s. military planes recently started l
, telling the press they are "allies" with the obama administration, who are staying anonymous because they fear retribution or fear from the white house. this whole thing just seems off, right? i mean there are obviously two intentions with setting it up like this. they're trying to convey the impression that this is a white house who attacks and tears up anybody who disagrees with them. that is the way the right likes to think about this white house, that is the way they operate. they may be more effective if they did, but that is not what they do. more broadly, they're asserting there is broad opposition to chuck hagel, we're just not allowed to know who it is. i'm not buying it it, i say bull-pucky, i might be wrong, but i call bull-pucky. and if i am wrong, there is an easy way to prove it. come out, come out, whoever you are. if you are not bill crystal or somebody like that, i'll be the first to admit i'm wrong. but i don't think i'm wrong. this is not a liberal group, it is a right-wing group, you're trying to look like liberals and we can tell. >>> mad house, let's play "hardb
criticism of her and the obama administration like this from a republican senator and potential 2016 presidential hopeful, rand paul. >> had i been president at the time and found you did not read the cables from benghazi, did not read the cables, i would have relieved you from your post. i think it's inexcusable. >> president obama picked senator john kerry to lead the state department after ambassador susan rice withdrew her name. you'll recall rice caught a lot of flack over the benghazi attack. kerry is chairman of the senate foreign relations committee. >>> we are still talking about this probably for the last time, though. an inaugural official told cnn that pop star beyonce did not sing the national anthem live on inauguration day. the official asked to not be identified and it was beyonce herself who made the decision the night before. >> now you think it's done? >> i don't think we'll hear from her at least not for a while on this subject. yesterday there was at least a mystery, did she or did she. now it appears she didn't. there you go. >>> the truth about manti te'o, the
to be confirmed as secretary of state next week. >>> and today, schools nationwide are being told by the obama administration that they must give disabled students equal access to extracurricular sports. not complying schools could lose federal funding. >>> looking at today's weather. bitter cold with a few inches of snow in the northeast, ohio valley and great lakes. icing from atlanta to nashville. rain in the southwest. rain and mountain snow in the pacific northwest. >>> and finally, a late-night laugh-a-thon a decade in the making. for then years, jimmy kimmel has been closing the show with apologies to matt damon, there never being time to have damon on. >> last night, matt damon got his revenge. >> welcome to tonight's episode of jimmy kimmel sucks. i'm your host, matt damon. you're going to be loyal to me now? >> yes, my lord. >> i'm sorry, guillermo. i just can't believe that. buen buenos noches, my friend. ladies and gentlemen, i took the liberty of hiring my own guillermo. welcome legendary actor, andy garcia. why don't you say hello to the new band leader. this is sheryl crow. he's
the virtue, after eight years then of barack obama and the obama administration, of being seen as somewhat of an outsider. and so it's a better way to go up against a republican, you know, after eight years of the obama administration is to have the first woman. that's the logical event that she basically would clear the field, even among the great friends and admirers of joe biden who i think has been the most effective vice president we've seen. the other small foreign policy point, not so small, the president was saying, ask moammar gadhafi and we wouldn't have what we had against mubarak. look at the headlines overnight. look at the streets of egypt, all over egypt today, egypt is hardly a success story that they should be pointing to. >> that's exactly right. in baseball, we're in the first or second inning of the middle east. this literally could be decades of turbulence. we've already seen the relationship between libya and mali and egypt, there's yet to be anything remotely like the consolidation of a democratic political order. so i think we have civil war in syria, we have unrest
the governors expect to see in round two of the obama administration. wisconsin's governor scott walker joins us. good evening pgood morning. >> good evening, greta. >> greta: first your thoughts on the inaugural address today? >> days like this are always uplifting, but the rubber hits the road the next couple of days and i think with the 30 states that have republican governors, we're hoping we have a president that's willing to work with the states and give us some authority to act on behalf of the taxpayers. if we can do that, we will have some good progress, but ultimately it's got to be about growth and getting people back to work and the best way to do that is through limited government and putting more money back in the hands of the american taxpayers. >> specifically, what would you like to see him do? >> well, i think a number is one, if we talk about things simple as medicaid and other issues that come up in the budget over and over again, empower states, democrat and republican governors alike, empower governors to go out and make decisions on state by state basis not one size fits a
? and is there the possibility of a deal between the obama administration and wall street? your thoughts. >> well rahm emanuel was out collecting money from wall street in the first cycle, collecting money from wall street for that first election, he was telling people that the man behind the curtain, president obama, who was running for president at the time, when he was talking tough about getting tough with bankers and actually cleaning up the culture of banking, that he wasn't really -- wasn't serious. and in the end, what ended happening, rahm emanuel collected a lot of money from wall street, but the administrative policy of not going after these bankers is what we were left with. it is impossible to believe that crime after crime that took place, trillions of dollars stolen, and we had an eric holder running this entire program. eric holder was making the calls. it wasn't lanny breuer. and you have to ask yourself were people above eric holder making these decisions. it's very clear. ronald reagan was faced with the same thing in the s & l crisis. you know what he did? he threw 700 bankers in prison fo
, washington. >> everybody loves those behind the scenes peeks. the obama administration decided to cut down to just two official balls this year, because the economic state of the country, they wanted to scale back. it's the fewest in decades. >> that makes sense for what's going on right now. >> reality of the times. did you get your invite? >> i got mine. >> no. mine. >> no. >> big plans. so when i found out medicare doesn't pay all my medical expenses, i looked at my options. then i got a medicare supplement insurance plan. [ male announcer ] if you're eligible for medicare, you may know it only covers about 80% of your part b medical expenses. the rest is up to you. call now and find out about an aarp medicare supplement insurance plan, insured by unitedhealthcare insurance company. like all standardized medicare supplement plans, it helps pick up some of what medicare doesn't pay. and could save you thousands in out-of-pocket costs. to me, relationships matter. i've been with my doctor for 12 years. now i know i'll be able to stick with him. [ male announcer ] with these types of plans
." tonight we're raising very serious questions about the obama administration's decision to hand over some of our most deadly military weapons to egypt. now, particularly given the nation's ties to anti-terrorist groups like the muslim brotherhood, and how idiotic the proposal is to give away f-16's and 200 tanks to a company led by a 9/11 truther like mohammed morsi. we have retired air force, tom mcinerney and a fox newt contributor, liz cheney. liz, i know you know this region very, very well. i know the argument was there were more moderate people in the military, but they've been replaced by supporters of mohammed morsi, so, i know -- what is the reason, tell me the motivation here knowing that this is going to put israel at risk. >> you know, i can't, i can't imagine what the motivation is, sean, you have a situation where the gift of these f-16's was approved back in 2010, when you had a very different set of circumstances. the egyptian military underhosni mubarak had in fact been an important ally of the united states. i think that the egyptian military still has the potential to b
for foreign policy and has worked in the pentagon under the obama administration and david frum, former speech writer for george w. bush and a contributor for us. rosa, right now, 50% of active duty personnel are women. they're not in combat positions. as we said, this could be hundreds of thousand of jobs suddenly would be open to women. am i right in saying this is hublgly significant? >> it's absolutely enormous. the one thing i would say though, it's not that we don't have women in combat positions. we have women who are ineligible under the former policy for combat military occupational specialties. but there really isn't any front line in today's wars. we've got women out there in combat, we've got women fighting heroically in combat, we've got women who have died in combat. this change just recognizes what's already a reality, frankly. >> david, please be blunt. i know what you have to say is, might offend some people, but this is important. why do you think women in combat is not a good idea? >> well, first, i think we need to stress, this is quite an abstract notion. the number of wom
. >> right. let me ask you, colonel b. that. the hope from the obama administration, of course, that is france can achieve the goal of at the least containing, which is the words that they've used, al qaeda and the radicals. obviously, at one point, francois hollande went further and said, completely getting rid of them. even if france claims clear victory i have to be honest all the sources i've spoken to, u.s. government and elsewhere, are not confident in france's ability to fully do this. will the united states be able to avoid more significant involvement or not? >> i think we have to plan as if we won't be able to avoid this kind of significant involvement. basically what that means is just as general clark mentioned, we are going to have to make sure that we have the right kind of sensors in place, logistics in place, and do the planning that put this right kinds of troops in place should we need to go in and do something preferably of a surgical variety. this is going to be a major issue for us because the french will be able to achieve certain tactical successes. but f
historic mandate. >> yeah. >> but don't wipe joe biden off the slate. he has been a vital part of the obama administration on foreign affairs and on domestic affairs. he's the one who goes and makes the secret deals with mcconnell. >> that's right. >> he is the go-to -- >> bob, i'm saying what democratic leaders are saying. i'm just quoting what they say, that she has -- >> plenty of time for 2016. ♪ [ female announcer ] almost nothing can dampen a baby's mood, when he wakes up dry in pampers. unlike other diapers, pampers has 3 absorbent layers, for up to 12 hours of protection overnight, and more beautiful mornings. ♪ pampers. peaceful nights. playful days. in the middle of the night it can be frustrating. it's hard to turn off and go back to sleep. intermezzo is the first and only prescription sleep aid approved for use as needed in the middle of the night when you can't get back to sleep. it's an effective sleep medicine you don't take before bedtime. take it in bed only when you need it and have at least four hours left for sleep. do not take intermezzo if you have had an allergic
is going to be to the obama administration what afghanistan was during the 1990's during the clinton administration, really a gathering place for the islamic militants who want a launching pad and north africa is close to obviously, to europe and it's target the united states, our allies, and really, north africa, i believe, is the new battle ground in the war-- al-qaeda's war against us and what should be be our war against them. >> mike: we for a long time thought that the war with al-qaeda and islamic extremism was from the middle east. is this like whack-a-mole and strike them in one place and they pop up somewhere else and not so much on the run and dispooridi disappeari disappearing, they relocate to a different geographical region. >> and they had tanzania, and really now, it's a concerted effort. mauritania and the combination of groups, the islamic magreb and remnants of al-qaeda in the arabian peninsula and it's an international movement and wherever there's a vacuum they perceive and they fill it it and where the president has hurt us the last several years, somehow implyi

instead of barack obama being sworn in again yesterday, the romney/ryan administration would have done everything they could to overturn roe versus wade. and that means that if there were a vacancy on the supreme court, any romney nominee to the supreme court realistically could be expected to be a surefire bet to vote to overturn that 40-year-old decision. when president obama leaned over to hug the rather fierce but rather small figure of 79-year-old supreme court justice ruth bader ginsburg yesterday at the capitol luncheon that was filled with all the washington vips, and president obama had that moment with ruth bader ginsburg, that physical contact, that hug between that particular justice and this particular president was a very real manifestation of the consequences of this election we just had. today outside the supreme court, as they do every year on the anniversary of roe, anti-abortion groups protested, expressing their view that it should be illegal to get an abortion in this country. there were also counter-protests, people and groups supporting the decision defending abo
